boost issue (i think it cleared)

so i got retuned becuz i had an up pipe leak and was only hittin 13 psi. but when i went to the retune i was only hittin about 1 bar. i thought it was my tmic ### it didnt look aligned. so i m drivin today and my boost gauge hits 0 bar at idle and shuts off. i knew it was a boost leak so i pop the hood and the intercooler hose is off the turbo loll. so i call my frends to help push home lol. we get the intercooler bak on and aligned properly this time.
here's the weird part, i give it a test run and gun it. im still only hittin 1 bar then i realized that i only hit full boost(20 psi) at 6500-7k rpm. is it ### my tuner didnt finish tuning it to 20 psi or another leak?

What BPV are you using and did you replace your solenoid?

So the 3port is tuned for ? Look into a Forge Full recirc.... Best out there so many have found out.

Or put the stocker back on to see if that helps.
